Pros

At CS, there is lot of exposure to all level employees, specially freshers. People are good and there is lots of flexibility...

Cons

Very less onsite opportunity, training through off sites

Advice to Management

More onsite and better mixing of roles in line with quality of people

    Pros

    Possibility to Work @ home. Workload was ok (not too many overtime) workload. Employee get special rates for mortages. Good childcare service. Good team spirit among colleagues (in IT), although company didn't do much for it.

    Cons

    Its a Bank, not an IT company (surprise, surprise!), although 40% of employees are in IT, it is pretty poor from an IT professional point of view. Working conditions (workstation, software, hardware, environment) are pretty poor and feels like being from from last century. The decision making processes is poor, too many stakeholderse involved, slow on simple decisions, incapable of making good decisions on complex matters. Incapable of running even smaller mid-sized projects. Software engineering process is overengineered and inefficient.
    Profit sharing only for top-managment, when times are harder, the bonus payments are cut on the lower levels. When cutting down jobs, they do not really care about the employees (part-time working mothers, young family fathers have to go first).

    Advice to Management

    Put Customers first (and not your own salaries) and employees second (especially the majority in the lower ranks that do the ACTUAL work), and the shareholder value will increase by itself.


  2. Great people, Swiss mindset can slow progress down for upper management.

    Pros

    Intelligent, respective, very rarely run into jerks.
    Investment Banking environment is very creative and keeps you on your toes to do better for yourself and your team.
    People are hardworking and competitive, but not with each other as much as other companies.
    For a bank, the employees care about each other. Didn't screw each other as other banks have been rumored to do.

    Cons

    As a swiss bank, it's over complicated and simple things become complex. Tough to get things approved and move forward because everything has to be run by Zurich. At times that is fine, but in a global role, I often felt my swiss counterparts weren't as sophisticated, but since the headquarters were in Switzerland we had to go by their rules.
